“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

We chose this Motel 6 because it was the closest to the Famoso Dragstrip.
Very friendly staff, clean room with a fridge and microwave, free WiFi and close to fast food chains and supermarket.
So what if the bed covers were a bit frayed and the carpet worn, if you can't put up with that spend more on a higher priced motel!

We stayed here in March on our way to LA. In fact, we stayed here last year and it was good then so we stayed here again. And the young blonde woman who had just started at nights last year was now on days so it was nice to see someone who I remembered and she was very friendly which makes our trip nicer. The room that we had was nice and we had no problems at all during our stay. I wish that it had been a little later in the year so we could have used the pool but maybe next year. However, the best thing about this motel is the fantastic coffee that they have - I don't drink a lot of coffee regularly so when we travel I usually have a cup or two. The coffee at this place is so good that I look forward to coming here again and even wrote the name of the company (Farmer Brothers) so I could check it out online when we got home.

My wife and I traveling thru Bakersfield, read the prior reviews and figured this was the better Motel 6 around Bako for a one night stay. Maybe it is, but still overall worst one we have stayed in for all time, many years. The bathroom fan was broken and it looks like for some time, not a big problem. Two bed room, non-smoking with the noisy A/C unit blows directly on one bed. Not their fault some prior guests smoke in the non-smoking rooms, but should spray them out. I learned from prior reviews, wear you socks and yes they turn black from the wood floors, not just truckers but the highway workers and others in construction stay there. The entire property smells of smoke, beer bottles and dog doo-doo. Now on the plus side, very low cost with senior discount. While the coffee dispenser is great, including the cup size, the coffee is lousy. We experienced some of the best Motel 6 mattresses here. So I guess, as they say; "You get what you pay for."

I agree with with Justin_DBC, one of the worst Motel 6's I've stayed at. Except my room had no carpet. The bathroom was rundown and the sink drain leaked out all over the floor. Yes the parking lot had shady characters hanging out. Yes the hot beverage machine in the lobby was a plus. And yes the fridge and microwave were a plus. And the ice machine actually worked, I've been to many places it didn't.

You get what you pay. This is a no-frills motel with everything you can need to rest. They offered free coffee which was a plus, free wi-fi and the room was clean, although a little old.
I used the washing machine /drying machine even though it closes during at night. The staff was correct.

Hey, it's Motel Seis, and for under $35 a night it's hard to beat. Sure, it's worn and some stuff is broken, but it clean and the staff is accommodating. It's set away from the freeway, so it relativity quiet. A lot of working guys staying for a few weeks, some truckers, senors on a budget and assorted whack jobs. The beds are reasonably comfortable and all the ACs are new and work great. I stayed because of work for about three weeks. Here's some tips: check out your room before you get settled. See that the TV & remote works, the shower has water pressure, the toilet seat is on tight and the door lock works. Check your WiFi connection if that's important to you, it's iffy. Also, bring a nice, soft bath towel. The ones provided are like sandpaper. And the most important item, EAR PLUGS. Count on somebody in the next room keeping the TV on all night, or doing the horizontal bop above you at 3am. All in all, for the money, a good place.
